Boston Arts Academy is a great school for children that want to express themselves threw art. There is no other arts school where children can do this except this great school. What I love about this school, it's not all about their art majors it is also about their academics to. People are hesitant when they hear art school but this school is very focus on the academics as well as there art major. The kids have to balance both if they want to succeed in this school. That is the great thing about this school they believe in every child no matter what they bring to the school everyone is accepted! This school gives them a chance to express themselves without getting judge and that is hard to find these days in a school great work BAA!
BAA students are passionate about what they do because they spend half the day making art. The school offers a well-rounded education, with passionate and committed teachers in every discipline. It is a true community where students, faculty, and staff help and support each other.
Im a former student of BAA. Academics here are very good you learn a lot in a little amount of time. You are already doing college work in 9th grade. The arts and activities such as community day are wonderful. Something each student waits for. The only thing though that in special cases in which you are medically ill in some way, they don't excuse you and try to accomodate you, they make choose between you staying a fifth year or leaving the school. They are not very understanding. Is their way or the high way but I have to say I do recommend it if you can handle it.
I am alumni, and I can definately say that I am where I am because of this school. The blend of interactive academic courses with the various art classes, is the perfect enviroment for any student. The 'at home' atmosphere that the school has achieved allows the student to feel nutured and loved.
I am a graduated BAA student. Parents should send their children to this school. It gives kids a chance to develop in a creative, passionate, and high spirited school. Teachers are willing to do anything and everything to see their students succeed. BAA truly has a staff of devoted teachers. It is also a school that prepares students both artistically and academicaly no matter what field. They challenge the student to think and act outside the box; it really allows a child to develop in a different setting.
This school is fabulous! If your child is talented in that special way, you should definetly send them here. They have acting classes, singing classes to improve vocal skills, dancing lessons, and many more. At this school, students can excel in what they love to do! This school is a high two thumbs up for me.
